    No need to be sorry for such an interesting post. I was still following Formula 1 when Hakkinen was racing, but never heard about the "ear accident".

    By the way - I was surprised to see Mika visiting Poland in November last year on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Polish Independence. It was even shown in the evening news on the national TV. The tall guy next to Mika is Polish prime minister Morawiecki:

    I'm with you Ben. I've followed rallying since I accidentally stumbled upon Rally NZ accidentally in 1977 as a kid. I was blown away with the speed and cars going sideways. I was hooked, but I've never heard of Mr Maximum Attack either.

    If all will agree they could bring tractors as long as it will be good promotion. So no matter what type of cars we will see in future. My predicition lies on SUV-s.

    Hardly, SUVs are passing trend probably, especially in countries with limits to city centers etc. Or atleast SUVs as they are now...hothatches/estates with higher clearence is another story.

    Maybe it was a 405 T16? In case the Impreza Turbo was too small.
